best doctor i seen in a long time i would recommend his office to anyone that's having problems here no long wait even if you're walking in

He has been my pcp for over 13 years now. He knows me so well, and I have a complicated, unique medical history. He has literally saved my life several times. E.g. when hospitals have said something impossible b/c labs didn't match my situation, but he was persistent. I had appendicitis and sepsis with normal wbc's and low/grade temps, just to name a couple. Several family members go to him, and have had similar issues b/c of our genetics. He saved their lives, too! Best pcp ever had!
